Organizers hopeful and planning for 123rd Salmon Arm Fall Fair in 2020

Focus may include pioneer skills relevant to the times such as growing own food

Unlike community events scheduled for earlier in the year, the 2020 Salmon Arm Fall Fair has not been cancelled by the coronavirus.

The Salmon Arm and Shuswap Lake Agricultural Association, which puts on the fair, is hoping to go ahead, reports the City of Salmon Arm’s representative on the association board.

The 123rd annual fair is scheduled for Sept. 11 to 13.

Coun. Sylvia Lindgren told council’s April 14 meeting that the board met recently.

“They are hopeful that the fair will be able to go ahead, so they’re planning for that.”
